New House New Home

Here's what I've been up to this week:
Spring! It's arrived a bit early here in Ontario, Canada. So I've been outside enjoying the sunshine and warmth. It's also been a time to put out some spring decor inside and prepare for Easter. I love anything birds and birdnests, so I made these birds nests from a hula skirt and a balloon.

With the weather warming up, we're also thinking about outside decor and we recently bought a new outdoor rug for the deck. It's also got me thinking about some outdoor lighting for the deck. We had some great patio lights, but the squirrels chewed through the cords. So I'm looking for some charming outdoor lighting ideas like these mason jar lights.

Thank you, dear readers for linking up last week. There were so many terrific projects & ideas, it was hard to choose which ones to feature. This week's features are full of spring, Easter and St. Patrick's Day!!

guilded eggs - link party

I love how Eilis took some ordinary eggs from WalMart and turned them into something so special!!! I'll be copying this idea for my Easter table!

Irish Soda Bread from Thel's Kitchen

Irish soda fruit bread
Thelma sure knows how to cook! Her blog is filled with tons of great recipes - including this Irish Soda Bread. It's sure to bring the Irish out in all of us!

just the woods table
I'm a sucker for an upcycled piece of furniture, so I had to feature this awesome table re-do from Kandice. You have to see the "before" to appreciate the transformation!!

Spring Wreath With a Twist by Red Cottage Chronicles

With the official start to spring just days away, it's time to switch up your front door wreath. Maureen from Red Cottage Chronicles shows us how to make a spring wreath with a twist - actually a basket for your front door! Love it!

St. Paul de Vence
Lory's recent trip to France has got me yearning for a European vacation this summer. She shares her experience visiting the quaint village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Can we all say "dream vacation"?

On to the party!
